Reviews For This Wine


 
International Wine Cellar | 90(+?)

Deep ruby color. Extremely primary aromas of cassis, dark chocolate and shoe polish, plus a floral nuance and a suggestion of dark berry syrup. Similar flavors in the mouth. Quite firm and solidly structured, but rather dumb and closed in today. Tannins seem a bit more rustic than those of the '97. Hard to assess with confidence today-but then I always find the Etude cabernet a difficult wine to judge in the 12 to 18 months following its release.

About This Producer


Etude was established in 1982 by wine consultant Tony Soter to produce high quality Cabernet Sauvignon and Pinot Noir sourced from top growers. The brand embarked on an estate-focused philosophy in 1999 with the purchase of a former pasture at the base of Sonoma Mountain. The sustainably-produced wines include Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, and five estate-grown Pinot Noirs. Additionally, their appellation-focused Cabernet Sauvignon program offers selections from St. Helena, Oakville and Rutherford, as well as a Napa Valley bottling. Winemaker is Jon Priest.
